My wife, a mutual friend, and I thought this tour sounded like fun, and we weren't disappointed. Our guide, Chris, was exceptionally knowledgeable, providing all sorts of interesting information on the mangrove ecosystem, both flora and fauna.
We started in the main channel, but soon moved into the mangroves, traveling through areas where we had to pull in our paddles and propel ourselves by grabbing the nearby branches and roots. For the final leg of the tour, we drifted back with the current, mostly just using our paddles to steer, and floating along peacefully.
There wasn't a ton of fauna, but we saw critters such as iguanas, herons, ibises, egrets, and tons of little crabs. At the end of the tour, we were lucky enough to see a bunch of capuchins, who put on quite the show for us. There was a boat docked on the mangrove side of the stream, and many of them jumped on the roof, tumbling around and chasing each other, and generally monkeying around. We sat and watched them for about 10-15 minutes. It was a fantastic finish to our tour.
Can't recommend this tour enough. It was a unique and exceptionally enjoyable experience.

Thank you for also reviewing your experience on the mangrove kayak tour with us! Damas Island estuary is a unique place that has to be seen to truly understand the experience. How fun that you were able to see a troop of mischievous monkeys! Thank you for your comments about our guide Chris, he is very knowledgable and loves what he does and we are glad to hear it shows. Come and visit us again on your next trip to Manuel Antonio!

If you want a activity but a break from the busyness, sun, and quality guide this is it! We had a great lesson of the mangroves from our guide, I wish I could remember his name, but he was knowledgable of the mangroves. We didn't tell him we were both natural biology backgrounds but he impressed us. We dont know much about the mangroves but he spoke high enough like we weren't little kids. He didn't talk down to us which was appreciated, some guides I've had in the past talk down to you assuming you've never walked foot outdoors. We saw all the species of mangroves, learned about the differences of them, learned about the crabs and the different types, and all about the ecological value of mangroves. We didn't see a ton of wildlife but did see a green heron eating crabs and long nosed bats. Our guide even stopped on the way to teach us about the palm plantations. He spoke great English and the say was finished by having a nummy lunch. So glad we booked this tour.

Great tour in the mangrove and fun in kayaks. Tony did a good job, learning us how to Kayak, and learning us about animals and nature.
